Hoop Op Welvaart is a 1907 Dutch Tjalk completely renovated to an extremely high standard between 2015 and today. No expense spared and was to be a forever home but life circumstances have reluctantly forced the sale. Sailed over to the UK in the late 80's this Tjalk has lived an interesting life and was once a working Sailing Barge delivering various goods around the coast of Holland. Tonnage book and some old documents are still with her.
Fits on the Grand Union and Kennet & Avon Canals and all the way up to Lechlade on the Thames for some epic Adventures but still a lovely large home to settle down in!
